[thechat] Beer Exchange?

I don't get to travel very much, but when I do, I like to do extensive beer 
research at wherever I'm going.  There are a growing number of really good 
regional breweries all around the US and abroad that I never get to taste. 
*Sigh*.  This discussion group has shown me that there are a number of list 
members who are very enthusiastic about the subject of beer and are also 
very knowledgeable about their local breweries.

So the idea of a beer exchange suddenly occurred to me.  I'm pretty 
knowledgeable about breweries and brew pubs in Oregon/Washington/N. 
California.  I would be happy to buy bottles of commercially bottled beer 
and bottle samples of non-bottled local beer and ship them to people who 
are interested in reciprocating with beer from their region.

I know that this is probably illegal.  I suspect that there are ways of 
making it more legal, but I'm not terribly worried.  We could fax each 
other copies of our drivers licenses or something.

Regardless, anyone potentially interested in the idea?  Worthy of further 
consideration? Comments?
